Re: ESPN: Why did Steve Spurrier fail in NFL?

Why are we talking about a college coach who hasn't coached in the NFL for close to 10 years now..

Re: ESPN: Why did Steve Spurrier fail in NFL?

because it looks like chip kelly may be making the jump, and if you wanted to speculate as to whether or not he can succeed, perspective on what went wrong with previous college phenoms may prove insightful.

and cause it still part of redskins history.

but i don't know, next time you bring up a draft prospect i'll ask why we're discussing people who aren't even in the nfl, or whatnot. if you're not happy with the thread, you're free to ignore it.

Then talk about Chip Kelly, not Spurrier who has said he will never go back to the pros again. Why should really look back at something so bad when we having something so good right in front of us.

And the draft is relevant, when Kiper and McShay come out, the draft starts to become important. Also I made that thread back when we were looking and a lot of us thought our season was done (even Shanahan)

This is pretty interesting and I'm glad I've read through this thread.

That's just me though...

I'd be second in line! Very interesting stuff.

This simple statement really captures the essence of Spurrier's problems in Washington. A very good friend of mine & myself actually knew two of Coach Spurrier's assistants. They were both candid about the lack of work ethic, the preference for golf over film study and practice, & Spurrier's arrogance with regard to "knowing more" than other coaches. Derailed his NFL career in a hurry!
